Pedal Powered Zeolite (Vacuum) Refrigerator. which provides it with increased mobility. • The new refrigerator created is independent of power grid. Pedal-Powered (Vacuum) Zeolite Refrigerator. The refrigerator works by creating a vacuum in a system of 2 chambers to drive a thermodynamic reaction (boiling. 16 Nov Pedal-Powered (Vacuum) Zeolite Refrigerator – YouTube any tried it before? i was just wondering if i can replace the Zeolite to just simple.

Since this problem was solved, we have begun doing re- search into substituting a sandwich panel made of two outer layers of used newspapers and a core of dried native leaves for zeolige styrofoam. There were also some concerns related to the use of methanol, since it is toxic.

This process creates a film of the adsorbate methanol on pedal powered zeolite refrigerator surface of the adsorbant zeolite.

Only logged in users can reply. An alternate adsorbent-adsorbate pair selection can easily solve this problem. The refrigerator would work on the principle of adsorption.

It is a remarkable technological offering that has made our lives a lot cooler. Click here to access the Project Report, and view their video here.

Later we chose copper sheet with internal support.

TBI Innovations: The Mechanical Fridge – Freezing Environmental Damage

Hence I decided to choose refrigeration as a field for our final year project, which will be an alternative to the conventionally used refrigerator, a project in which simplification of present tech is involved to get cooler water, with less power consumption so that a common man can have an access to it.


Ramani 6 years ago. We live in the North geographical region of Karnataka, where pedal powered zeolite refrigerator is usually high in summer degrees celsius. Obviously, it was not just the marks pedal powered zeolite refrigerator the design could fetch, it was also the delightful revolution that this could bring about, something that Narendra and his fellow batch mates, Pedal powered zeolite refrigerator and Murthy were very proud about — of making the refrigerator an affordable and economical choice and not just a luxurious one among even the lower income population.

This was what motivated the third year Engineering student from BEC College, Bagalkot, Karnataka, Narendra Patil to come up with this interesting model of a refrigerator. But the refrigerator too has two sides to it.

Response and Road Ahead The model completed, there were felicitations and applause from every corner. Pedal Power Zeolite Refrigeration.

Project Ideas: Pedal powered refrigerator

The pedal powered zeolite refrigerator started off as their topic for the final year project. Even ice cubes can poweree made, and one cool advantage of this system is that the hotter it is outside, the more cold you can generate.

Certainly this is no way to keep two bottles of milk, some Coke, and a roast of beef freezing cold. It could be used in medical camps again in rural areas for preserving vaccines and drugs and as water cooling units. Narendra tells us proudly:. There is research refrigerahor on the solar powered adsorption refrigeration. That said, pedal powered zeolite refrigerator are their own critics and perfectionists. Problems Identified Time consuming Leakage problem through pipes Pedal powered zeolite refrigerator working of Piston Proper lubrication is required This system only works when vacuum is created.


For cooling, continue pedaling is required. Powred is surmounted by a 50 cm. Other modular cubes can be added. After only about 10 min zeolitte pedaling, the valve to the vacuum pump can be shut off, and the zeolite container line opened.


They collected research papers and supporting documents in the seventh semester. The limitations that they are working on include the low COP values, poor heat and mass transfer problem that poses a bottleneck to prevent the improvements of adsorption refrigeration technique, intermittently working pedal powered zeolite refrigerator, refrigerqtor technology requirement and special designs to maintain high vacuum.

The refrigerant used, methanol, is environmental friendly since it pedal powered zeolite refrigerator not a hazardous substance. We have completed the work over the pistonand now we are analysing the process of cooling. By logging in, you agree to our pedal powered zeolite refrigerator and conditions and privacy policy. The Hurdles Once the design was put on paper, the real challenge lay in actualizing it with instruments, apparatus and raw materials.

Even with exams nearing and project deadlines looming large over their heads, they travelled from store to store and went pedal powered zeolite refrigerator extra mile. But here lay the glitch. Thus, adsorption is the adhesion of atoms, ions or molecules from a gas, liquid or dissolved solid to a surface.
